DAVID BOWIE : NO CONTROL [1.OUTSIDE, 1995]

To “No Control”, ένα από τα λιγότερο γνωστά αριστουργήματα του DB, προέρχεται από το άλμπουμ Outside του 1995. Έχοντας αφήσει πίσω την “Phil Collins περίοδο”, όπως αποκαλεί τη δουλειά του των ’80s, ο David είναι ξανά απρόβλεπτος και δημιουργικός, έχοντας δίπλα του στο στούντιο, για μια ακόμα φορά τον Brian Eno.

“No Control”, one of the lesser known DB masterpieces is from the 1995 album Outside. Having left behind his “Phil Collins period”, as he ‘s characterized his ’80s releases, David has become unpredictable and creative again, with Brian Eno by his side.

Stay away from the future
Back away from the light
It’s all deranged – no control
Sit tight in your corner
Don’t tell God your plans
It’s all deranged
No control
If I could control tomorrow’s haze
The darkened shore wouldn’t bother me
If I can’t control the web we weave
My life will be lost in the fallen leaves
Every single move’s uncertain
Don’t tell God your plans
It’s all deranged
No control
I should live my life on bended knee
If I can’t control my destiny
You’ve gotta have a scheme
You’ve gotta have a plan
In the world of today, for tomorrow’s man
No control
Stay away from the future
Don’t tell God your plans
It’s all deranged
No control
Forbidden words, deafen me
In memory, no control
See how far a sinful man
Burns his tracks, his bloody robes
You’ve gotta have a scheme
You’ve gotta have a plan
In the world of today, for tomorrow’s man
I should live my life on bended knee
If I can’t control my destiny
No control I can’t believe I’ve no control
It’s all deranged
I can’t believe I’ve no control
It’s all deranged
Deranged
Deranged

      Absolutely great! Among other things I love the contrast between the title and the “transcendentally” controlled groove of the song.

        Transcendentally controlled groove is a perfect description.
